Here at Twyford, we provide a modern flexi-boarding experience in a safe, fun, family-orientated environment. Everyone looks out for each other and our core values of friendship, respect, honesty, kindness and responsibility are evident in every aspect of boarding life. It’s also great fun with lots of activities to enjoy including weekly barbeques in the Summer, movie nights with cupcakes, our giant games of hide-and-seek in the School grounds in the summer or our legendary dodgeball games in the Sports Hall when the nights draw in.
Pupils may board from Year 4. Many parents prefer to use flexi-boarding when their children are younger and by the time they reach the senior Years 7 and 8, more board on a weekly basis.
We are excited about our new Boarding House, Orchard Close which we are aiming to have ready for use from January 2022.
Boarding at Twyford prepares children for their future senior school, which may be on a full basis. Our boarding team and Matrons support all the children to help develop an independence that will give them confidence with their transition to senior schools.
International pupils are very welcome at Twyford and we have an excellent record of placing boys and girls at English senior schools. Overseas boarders go to local guardians from their last commitment on a Saturday until Monday morning.
February 2021 update: We are delighted to announce that the School has recently completed on the purchase of Orchard Close, a substantial property adjacent to our current School premises. This site is 2.36 acres with 15,600 square feet of good quality buildings set within beautiful established grounds. This exciting purchase will allow us to realise and deliver our plan to a provide a ‘state of the art’ modern boarding facility, capable of offering extended flexi-boarding opportunities to the many more children who wish to experience this at Twyford. It will also provide greater flexibility for families to access boarding at shorter notice.
We are very excited about this project and are looking forward to updating you along the way!
